Taken from various sources on the net and on the shortwave radio, with plenty of it coming from this very site, this is an audio collage of transmissions from spies from all over the world transmitting in secret code, declassified and probably from many years ago. As an aside, the NIST atomic clock on shortwave radio freaks me out as a matter of course, because I've always imagined that in the event of a worldwide nuclear war, that station would keep on functioning, but there would be no one...
An allegory about an alcoholic jerk ruining your life? Think bigger! Baby, What have you done to my happy home? The things you've driven me and my own to do throwin' shadows on our souls. Baby, While you're out fixing scores, tell me, Where's all the money gone? And come now sweet baby, don't you be telling me lies will you help us weather the coming storm? 'Cause while you dance in the ballroom, We walk in the snow to the bus, and when, you wink and grin to mothers and fathers while their...
Another song that ended up being completely different from my original idea. It's a curse, I tells ya. This is the first time I add singing to the mix, and the results are spectacularly silly. Hope you enjoy. NOTE: PARENTAL ADVISORY: SOME QUESTIONABLE LYRICS Lyrics/music by anonymous paulson Because I loved you so, Because I loved you so, Because you left me broke You f***d me Now all I want you to know Now all I want you to know Now all I want you to do is kiss me Now, today! My heart explodes...
I originally wrote this song about 5 years ago, well, actually, the first 45 second of the song you hear, sans the flute and cellos in the background. I simply felt that looping the original 45 second, then adding orchestra, percussion, drums, fuzz guitar, electric guitar and so on to the mix would give it an interesting mix. Still a little sloppy, but I like it.
Here's a preliminary test version of my latest song, Song For the Dead. I'm experimenting with vocals without any discernable meaning, yet can remain evocative. If anyone would like to comment, offer feedback and suggestions, be my guest. This isn't a final product by any stretch of the imagination. Feel free to take whatever you like from the recording though. Topics: anonymous, paulson, changes, music, soundtrack, free, instrumental
Something I knocked off while being alone... pun intended. Try and guess what this song is about. Many of the band members are still scratching their heads. lyrics: Just when I thought that I was all alone, I shut the blinds and locked the doors at home, The phone rung just when I grabbed my bone... Leave me alone tonight, Leave me alone tonight! It's not that I don't wanna be with you It's just that I'm more into my Sailor Moon I promise someday we'll go out soon... Just leave me alone...

Just a simple little waltz, which, ironically, never used a metronome during its composition. Yes, I admit, it sounds very Jon Brionesque (I'm a big fan) and it resolves itself a little strangely, but I like it like that. I hope you will too. Note: The ogg vorbis versions are deliberately less compressed than the mp3s simply because they have considerably better sound quality (nearly indistinguishable from the master recording) If you need a HQ version for your own projects, I strongly suggest...

This started out as an inside joke with my closest sister, but the guys thought it was a pretty good tune. I dunno. Oh well, enjoy. I'd be nice if I could get any kind of feedback for a change, good or bad. Lyrics: Here we go again.. Here comes the pain again. Don't want to get up and face the day if things remain this way I once was a girl who had not a care in the world But like all little girls I hit the brick wall that was Tuesday Time and time again, Like I'm made out of sand People don't...
Something I cooked up using some new software. The boys are a little peed at me, because only one of them played on this track, the others were too busy getting high. Ah well, you snooze, you lose. I keep saying I'm going to finally release this album, but I keep putting it off. Good thing we're not doing this for a living or we would have been fired a long time ago.

Me and the boys decided that some dance music was called for. Since the majority of us are severely undersexed, we decided to come up with the kind of song that could be used for a pick-up line. Needless to say, it didn't work, but we did like the resultant song. We still need to get laid though.

Curiously, I composed this song without the use of a metronome. Maybe the real reason I called it metronome was I couldn't think of a decent title for it. I knew there was a reason I don't write lyrics to most of my songs now. Anyway, I hope you enjoy it. I know it sounds very Jon Brion-like, but that's only because I really like his soundtrack work. BTW, I included ogg vorbis files because their sound quality, bit per bit, are better than mp3 - so if any of you out there would like to burn...

Another waltz song, but this time, I was looking to make something stuck out of time - not necessarily similar to any one type of music. I'm a little ambivalent about this song, not entirely satisfied, so perhaps some feedback would be nice :) Please note the ogg vorbis version is of the highest quality available as it is nearly indistinguishable from the original. If you find any use for this recording and would prefer the best quality, I suggest the ogg file. For some reason, the phase...
Looks like I am at it again folks! This time, a little more discipline is involved in creating this music. Hopefully you will all like it, but even if you don't, that's all right as well. I like this tune, but then again, I'm pretty easy to please. Feel free to comment. This will be included on a new album later this fall.

Um. I think our bassist went too far. Well, really, even non-heteros should have their naughty songs too... lyrics: I've got a plan to make it all happen.

A love song for a good friend of mine, who recently found someone who loves him for everything, the good and the bad. He's a sweet guy, so I wrote him this song. lyrics: Grey clouds gathering almost everyday They shower constantly on these Indiana Plains.

This song is dedicated to a friend, who decided to enlist in the American Armed forces. At the time, I had a hard time reconciling why such an intelligent, compassionate, open-minded person like him would possibly want to enlist, at his age (he's pushing 40). I guess he wants to serve his country. All I wish is that he doesn't get himself killed or put in harm's way in any way. Well, you can tell there is a bit of a Ennio Morricone influence to the progression and the emotionalism - that was...
Falling up, a song about failing on your feet. Well, not really. Again, why do I choose these names, I dunno. Not sure where the inspiration came from in this one. It sounds triumphant at one point into the song, then resigned and beaten. Who knows? I think my brain was shut off, and I composed it with my spine. I like it enough to share it with the world, in the hopes someone will like it almost as much as I have.
No, no, I'm not going away, it's just another little ditty I wrote a few years ago on a rainy night in the basement of a dormitory. Not sure what to do with this thing. Might stick it on the album, might keep it as an orphan. favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite ( 1 reviews ) Topics: piano, music, free, anonymous, paulson, instrumental
Something I composed in 3 hours flat. Didn't turn out exactly the way I wanted, since I wanted the choir to sing less in key (there's just something that either pulls one's ears to correct the pitch or each and every voice ends up masking the other. Also, it might have helped to have had more falsetto voices. Oh well. I like the chord progression. It is a work in progress, with a little fine-tuning and whatnot, this might be a good song. Someday, I might learn to write and perform a song that's... Topics: anonymous, paulson, changes, music, soundtrack, free, instrumental
free music!!! public domain, creative commons for the masses!!! original composition too!!! Mostly because I don't think anyone would be willing to pay for this music anyway. Heh heh heh. Well I hope you folks like it. Why is this called Hoohah? I have no idea. Maybe it's because I don't have a real title for this song. You'd think, heh. Mind you, I've discovered that a lot of the instrumentals I write start off with one goal, and end up being about something else. Not sure if one can consider...
Something about the electric piano riff I've had in my head for a long time, wanted to do something with it. I figured it would be another fine reason for some cheap orchestration. I like this one, except for the guitar solo. I'm not a very good guitarist, and it needs just that right touch. So if anyone out there would like to contribute a nice soft blues solo, let me know by leaving a comment. favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite ( 2 reviews )
A little jazz romp, with a simple enough progression. Did this song in about 2 hours. Love the feel of it, and I wanted the instrumentation to be a little different. I like the mix, and it was a challenge to play all the parts and to get the right syncopation, especially with the percussion. Still some timing errors and some of the stuff is slightly out of sync, but again, this is me playing all of the instruments without a sequencer to quantitize the notes. Hope you like it. Note: for highest...
Something to cheer you up when you're feeling down and out. One of the girls wrote this on the back of a napkin and promptly lost it. A kind old man, looking for used underwear found it, recognized the handwriting from other trash she obviously had thrown out, and gave it to her, in exchange for a lock of her hair. He got a restraining order instead. Nice guy, though. Topics: music, free, anonymous, paulson, instrumental, pop, happy, brass, quirky, tuneful, soundtrack
This is the first of many installments of anonymous paulson's lost camper tapes - songs that were recorded in a 1966 Prowler 26-foot camper with the help of some borrowed equipment. Here are three of the cleanest-sounding ones. This was before Anonymous Paulson learned that direct sunlight and humidity are not good for tape. Since then, it's been all digital for the group and I. Mind you, the technology got better, but it seems we've pretty much stayed the same. ( 1 reviews )

Finally an anthem for all those arty, pasty, sad bastards who feel the days pass like water over sharp rocks in the rain, surrounded by tall, out of reach trees as a trout struggles its way up the rapids, only to die before it gets there... *snif* excuse me, I need a moment...

Stalkers never get any glory. Our drummer had a riff going, and I was on the acoustic bass, and I guess I was reading John Hinckley's story at the time, and one thing led to another... plus there was that incident last year with that sumptuous woman I'm not supposed to be talking about.

For those of you concerned with the title, fear not, it is not laden with, shall we say, colourful terms, but it alludes to a gentle introduction to the pleasure of sex. There are no lyrics, save for one line, and it's hardly anything specific. I can't pinpoint what inspired me enough to compose this song, maybe it's 1970s porno music, maybe it's all the groove music I've been listening to lately, one thing is for certain, I had sex on the brain when I composed it.

A song the band didn't want to record, because we had originally made a rule, no love songs, no breakup songs, or songs about romance gone wrong. Since we record in my basement, I told them they could all walk if they didn't like it. Needless to say, here's the song. Enjoy. Topics: free, music, anonymous, paulson, rock, guitar, cold, hearted
This is my attempt at evoking a sort of easy-listening lounge pop song you might find on mid-60s film. It's short because I figured I got the point across right away, and I don't like dragging out unecessary musical motifs. I think I pulled this one off rather well, almost fooled myself. Don't know if there is anyone out there who would take to this song, but hey, sometimes, these things write themselves and take me along for the ride. Wrote this for a very close friend, who loved it. Note: The...
Just something I cooked up while watching Rumsfeld snowjobbing the press and the public. Imagine yourself on the front lines of the press room as he starts uttering syllable after syllable and you feel like you're melting and climbing the walls at the same time. So I wrote a march, a poor person's march, if a poor person could turn Sousa on his ear and show him what this new world is about. Enjoy folks!!!
I feel with this song, I am coming close to completing my next album. Wrote this for my best friend as a way to compose a song that sounds like it was made the year she was born (1967). Obviously, it sounds a little too crisp for it to sound anything other than digital, but me and the boys were going more for feeling than replication. The inspiration of this song comes from an old 1960s TV commercial (probably 1966-67) for the New York Stock Exchange. You can probably find it on this site in...

Something I composed whilst sick with the flu in the past two weeks. This is a bit of headphone music with a little help from Quiet American sounds. Sounds best on decent headphones (highly recommended especially since there's a lot of binaural sounds) Don't know if there's going to be a lot of phasal problems with people's typical speaker setups, not everything in the piece is binaural. Anyway, hope you enjoy it. The Ogg Vorbis, as usual, is the best quality version (and the most likely to...
This is part of a longer song I am currently composing. The intro could stand on its own, but I think, hey, what the hell - maybe someone out there could use it as a moody, instrumental passage in their film or something... I've just noticed, particularly with the bass notes on the piano that it resembles very much Vince Guaraldi's work on his Peanuts scores, of which I am very fond of. Maybe it's true, there's no avoiding making derivative music. Not that it should matter anyway: what matters...
A song for a woman I once loved more than love itself. I had been toying around with this little ditty for a long time, pretty shapeless and meandering. At first, I tried it in two different beats - 2/2 time, then 3/4 time for the minor shift near the end. At first I thought it was cool, but eventually, I began to realize how it destroyed the wistful mood I was trying to convey. It made it sound too much like carousel music. So I kept it as a waltz. It's really a simple song, on which I learned... favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite ( 1 reviews )
I've always been a big fan of ambiguous, indirect lyrics, particularly when it pertains to sometimes unsavoury topics. Of course, one must have skill to pull it off, and being a novice at writing lyrics for a song, I honestly don't know if I've pulled it off. I was looking to be a little evasive in which point of view I was conveying in this song, but I will cop that this is a sympathetic paeon to Sarah, a beautiful, experienced older woman.
